My favorite thing on the menu are the blackened fish tacos. I get them practically every time we go. I suggested them to others in our party and 3 others ordered them and all loved them as well.

The crab bisque is always the best. And their take on ceviche is quite good. A relaxing atmosphere for a nice lunch.

Love the grilled filet salad! So good. Best bread and honey butter with nutmeg, I think. Relaxed setting with consistently good food and live music on many nights.
